rolled out of bed around 0700. had breakfast. happened to be checking something in the living room, and then was walking back through the entryway right around 0820 and friends, i was in the right place at the right time and i solved the mystery of the unusual noise! i heard the noise, ran quickly and stuck my head out the door, and realized that it was coming from inside the house …and then i realized it was the automatic feeder in the fish tank.
i must report, my exhilaration at getting to the bottom of this was as immense as it was short-lived.
into my office a bit before 0900. helped review a quote/SOW before it got sent out, reviewed some PRs, worked on the website a bit, had an internal call. not a dramatically productive day but i’ve certainly had worse recently. (plus any day where i get to have a heated discussion with a colleague about whether a document should use ‘e.g.’ or ‘i.e.’ is probably at least an okay day.)
spent some time in the afternoon finishing off a blog post about recipe formats. i made the first notes about that post back in late march, so i’m glad that i finally got it out into the world.
due to a lack of advance planning, dinner ended up being takeaway thai. sadly, TheWife reports that the social distancing and pickup implementation left a lot to be desired, so that’s probably the last takeaway from there for a good while. haz sad now
did the dishes, played a few rounds of fluxx, and then planned out what i’d like to get done tomorrow. couple glasses of wine and the hellsite led me to sleep.
dinner: take-away thai (specifically, pad kee mao gai, which i had been craving)
